Barbera d'Alba Bussia 2022


Tasting Notes

Intense ruby red in color. The subtle oak aging enhances the complexity while maintaining fruity aromas of black currant and berries with notes of spice and tobacco. Balanced and expressive with great acidity.

Food Pairing

A perfect match with legume soups, roasted or braised meats, pork, poultry or spicy cheeses.
